Hi all, Hope you all are doing well. I went to the surgeon today and he acted like a totally different person than he usually is. He checked the tumor and said that it has shrunk some, but the chemo doctor said earlier that it hadsn't. So who do I believe??? He also did not want to do the CT scan. He said I had soft tissure swelling and if the cancer spread or it it hasn't, I still need to keep up the chemo as scheduled. We also told him that the chemo doctor wanted him to call while I was there and he said, I will have the nurse call later. It's like he is saying everything the opposite of the chemo doctor and he didnt want to call, because he didn't want to get into any conflict. He also said he doesnt want to do surgery on me yet. He said to just make sure that I have plenty of pain and nausea meds. I don't know what to think. He acts like he knows more than he's telling me. Which do I believe, a chemo doctor that deals only with cancer or a surgeon(who Ive always trusted completely) that does all types of surgery??? Im really confused right now. Well, on to chemo tomorrow. No delay there. Pray that I won't have side effects like last time. Also, my husband and I are wanting to go away for about 4 or 5 days after my doctor's appts Mon and Tues. I'm going to talk to the chemo doctor about this tomorrow. Also, pray he gives the go ahead. Also, my husband is pretty sure he has a job. We'll probably know more next week, so we're wanting to do something together before he starts working. Also, we're going to try and find someone to take me to appts and to stay with me while he's gone, in case I get sick. That's the only way he won't worry. Sorry so long. Just a lot going on, Please pray,pray,pray.
